The year the General Agricultural Competition was created. The descendant of the country fairs of the 18th century and the “Plump Animals” or “Slaughter Animals” competition was created in 1844 in Poissy. The General Agricultural Competition was officially launched in Paris in 1870.
In 1925, it moved to the Porte de Versailles Exhibition Centre and has evolved continuously ever since. Initially reserved for animals only, it now includes competitions for regional and dairy products and wines and has a magnificent showcase: the Paris International Agricultural Show.
